A seventh resolution: 2022-20 dealing with an application for a FLAP grant with the county, was approved during the regular session. The resolution had been approved during a special meeting Monday, but a change was made based on communication with county officials, so the resolution was brought back to the aldermen last night for approval with the change.

Bill No. 4467 – A proposal for professional services with Cochran Engineering for a 15-year street preventive maintenance plan.

One measure was given first and second round approval.

Following the regular session, the aldermen met in a work session to discuss a proposal to extend a driveway from the former Biltbest building to Blain Street to facilitate the movement of 50 or more tractor-trailer rigs to and from the building now occupied by new firms.
